Effectively Engaging with Multilingual Learners in Diverse Undergraduate Classrooms

Effectively Engaging with Multilingual Learners in Diverse Undergraduate Classrooms Online

The undergraduate student population at MSU consists of diverse students who come from different linguistic and cultural (including classroom culture) backgrounds. Since the medium of instruction in most disciplines is English, many multilingual learners who do not speak English as their first language may find it challenging to navigate instruction, assignments, and course expectations. In this workshop, we will discuss ways of creating an effective and welcoming learning environment for multilingual learners in diverse undergraduate classrooms.  


  • Dr. Hima Rawal  is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at The Graduate School. She completed  her doctoral work in Second Language Studies at Michigan State University (MSU). Her research interests include trauma-informed teaching and research, pedagogy of care, learner and teacher emotions, critical multilingual awareness, and humanizing research and pedagogy in linguistically diverse classroom settings. Currently, she is serving on MSU’s International Studies and Program’s Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) task force and Trauma Services and Training Network’s (TSTN) steering committee. She is also an Affiliate with CTLI (and past CTLI graduate fellow)!

Please register for this event and add the details to your calendar. The Graduate School will send a reminder with Zoom connection information a few days before the session. Additionally, slides and any other related materials after the session will be distributed to all registered participants after the fact.
